Kids Exploratory Coding Playground

Grades K-2 / Monday, July 20-24 / 9a.-12p. / $165

You’re never too young to start coding! This course is specially created for young children in rising grades K to 2. We are using Scratch Jr. to encourage a light and playful environment to create a digital story and simple animation. Students will be immersed in their own creation using their own voice and giving a sequence of instructions using lego-styled blocks. The main objective is to let students take control of their creation and gain an understanding of how he/she can alter the behavior and sequence of events (Please note syntax or algorithm will not be discussed as this is not the objective of the course). This introductory course will empower young children to gain confidence in themselves and be aware of human and computer interaction. No prior knowledge of computer programming is required
